Charity Tahmaseb has slung corn on the cob for Green Giant and jumped out of airplanes (but not at the same time). She doesn’t think it’s a social stigma to eat alone at a restaurant and read a book. Her favorite city is London, but she loves living in Minnesota.

She spent twelve years as a Girl Scout and six in the Army; that she wore a green uniform for both may not be a coincidence. These days, she writes young adult fiction and works as a technical writer for a software company in St. Paul.

Oh, the Janesville Baby is definitely something that could/should be part of a mystery:

A doll. Hanging in an upper window. In an old house. Glimpsed briefly, through the smudged window of a school bus.

I’m about 9,000 words into the revision. This isn’t simply going over the scenes I’ve already written. True, there’s some...

“Genius or jock, it didn't seem to matter. Boys were born with a gene that kept girls, no matter how smart they might be, from understanding them.”
Charity Tahmaseb, The Geek Girl's Guide to Cheerleading

“Uh-oh," Moni sang, and nodded her head in Chantal's direction. "I think someone's a wee bit upset with us." She turned and walked a few steps backward.
"Careful," I said. "We're not out of range."

"What are you going to do, daze her with denominators?"
"Maybe. But first I'm going to pummel her with my Pythagorean theorem.”
